Coop’s Citizen Sci Scoop: Weekly Roundup
I’m motivated to begin a weekly roundup because there were at least
four five cool scientific papers this week that relied on citizen science. I’m absolutely sure that there were more that did not come across my desk. Help me fill in the blanks by sending links of more papers reporting the results of research that relied on citizen science. Send to me via twitter @CoopSciScoop or put in the comments below.
Later this month, I’ll discuss one or more of these papers. Comment below on which are of particular interest to you! moths, koalas, lake water, butterflies, and the list will grow.
New findings brought to you by citizen science:
Lottig et al. Long-term citizen-collected data reveal geographical patterns and temporal trends in lake water clarity. PLOS ONE
Fox et al. Long-term changes to the frequency of occurrence of British moths are consistent with opposing and synergistic effects of climate and land-use change. J Applied Ecology
Bates et al. Garden and landscape-scale correlates of moths of differing conservation status: significant effects of urbanization and habitat diversity. PLOS ONE
Sequeira et al. Distribution models for koalas in South Australia using citizen science-collected data. Ecology & Evolution.
Diamond et al. Unexpected phenological responses of butterflies to the interaction of urbanization and geographic temperature. Ecology
